    Three Women of Troy Earn Quarterfinal Spots

    Oct. 22, 2010

    SAN DIEGO, CALIF. -- The USC women's tennis team will be well represented in tomorrow's quarterfinal rounds at the ITA Southwest Regional Championships, boasting three Women of Troy in the quarterfinal singles action. USC's three doubles pairs also snagged victories in today's Round of 32 in order to move on.

    Top-seeded Maria Sanchez rolled through to quarterfinal play with a pair of straight-set wins today. So, too, did her younger Trojans teammate Danielle Lao, who rolled through her competition to also take a quarterfinal slot tomorrow. Freshman Kaitlyn Christian had a longer day of it, but matched the success of her teammates in pulling out two three-setters to also make her move to the quarters.

    Sanchez and Christian will have a full plate tomorrow, as they team up on the doubles courts for the Round of 16 after securing a Round of 32 win today. Valeria Pulido and Alison Ramos slipped up in singles play, but combined forces again as the top-seeded doubles team and pinned up a powerful win to also take a place in the Round of 16 doubles play tomorrow. Lyndsay Kinstler and Danielle Lao are also through to the next round with a strong win of their own today on the doubles courts.
